Geckos are creatures in the Mojave Wasteland.

Characteristics

Biology

Geckos can be found living across the entire Mojave Wasteland, with many different species calling the local area their breeding grounds. They are said to have been stemmed from the Fire Root Cavern.[1] There are three types of gecko in the Mojave: normal geckos, golden geckos, and fire geckos. Another variety, the green gecko, is found in Zion Canyon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

Geckos in general are reptilian, and are normally born with a pair of fins behind their heads. Their eyes possess an orange tint, and their body coloration differs greatly based on the gecko sub-species present. Geckos have evolved with five fingers and five toes.

Gameplay attributes

Geckos are generally found in small packs. They charge or leap at their opponents with their mouths open ready to snap down, along with being known to simply attack with their claws rapidly. Some sub-species of geckos can breathe fire or spit poison, so that they may also attack from a distance.

Their hides and meat prove as useful Survival crafting ingredients; in particular the hides, once tanned, can be used to craft several varied types of armor which offer greater defense than their base variants along with resistances to fire, poison, and radiation.

Geckos, green geckos, and golden geckos are affected by the Animal Friend perk. Fire geckos, however, remain hostile to those players with the perk.

Variants

Gecko

FNV LGecko

Geckos appear in small to large packs depending the location. They will charge at their prey with their mouths open, and attack by biting and with swipes from their claws. Geckos can be found mostly in the areas surrounding Goodsprings, along the I-15 towards Primm and the Mojave Outpost. These are the least dangerous species of gecko found within the Mojave.

Golden gecko

FNV GGecko

A type of gecko with brilliant golden scales. They can be found around irradiated areas, such as Crescent Canyon east and Crescent Canyon west, Vault 34, and Cottonwood crater. Golden geckos have been affected by high levels of radiation, causing their larger size and unique coloration. In addition, exposure to radiation has caused their attacks to inflict significantly large numbers of rads.

Green gecko (Honest Hearts)

GreenGeckoFNV

Green geckos are native to and only found in Zion Canyon. When attacking from a distance, they can spit several far-reaching but slow-moving globs of poisonous saliva, somewhat resembling the radioactive spit attack that centaurs use. Once in contact with an enemy, they will attack like other types of gecko, by biting and clawing. Green geckos are almost always found in packs ranging from two to eight. Green geckos are often found near waterways and bridges in Zion Canyon.

Notable geckos

Notes

  • Several friendly geckos appear in the main Sorrows camp in Honest Hearts. They are possibly tamed.
  • Geckos do heavy damage to limbs, especially the head.
  • Another type of fire gecko exists, but was cut from the final product. Its name is Gojira. Simply called "gecko" when spawned, Gojira is its editor ID. It's identical to the fire gecko, but about triple the size and has a whopping 8,000 HP.

Appearances

Geckos appear in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

Before the release of Honest Hearts, the green geckos were mistakenly referred to as "Greek geckos" in press material. This was corrected before the release.

Bugs

  • PCIcon pc Geckos may not always be hostile to the Courier, even if the player doesn't possess the Animal Friend perk. However, getting too close or trying to speak to one may turn it hostile. [verified]
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Green geckos inhabiting Zion Canyon may not be hostile to the Courier, and approaching or attempting to talk to them will not change their disposition. If you happen to shoot one of these geckos, simply put away your weapon and it will return to being friendly, just like a normal non-player character. [verified]
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 In the Mojave Desert, several young gecko hunters may be found superimposed upon one another, but not moving from the spot except to flail their arms and roar loudly. They cannot be damaged with guns, and when attacked and killed with a melee weapon, the game freezes and must be reset. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc Geckos around Goodsprings source may spawn inside of rocks. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 When a fire gecko's head is shot, flames will shoot out as if it were attacking. [verified]

Sounds

  • Idle gecko
  • Gecko in pain
  • Snarling gecko
